        In order to make your poll class work correctly as an 'Item'
        you'll need to make a few changes. You must add a 'meta_type'
        class attribute, and you may wish to add an 'id' parameter to
        the constructor::

          class PollProduct(..., Item):


              def __init__(self, id, question, responses):
                  self._question = question
                  self._responses = responses
                  self._votes = {}
                  for i in range(len(responses)):
                      self._votes[i] = 0

           I guess class PollProduct should have a title atrribute!?!

           As I understand it: either a title='' attribute, so the class will never have a title, or add a title
           parameter to the __init__ and assign it to self.title.
